Great place to work for second job
Firearms inspector/switchboard (Former Employee), Winnipeg, MBMay 23, 2014
Pros: staff days with great food
Cons: long hours and breaks few a far between
Typical day at work was always changing never staying the same something new happening each hour. Learn lots from moving into different departments and new job postings. The co-workers are great to work with and the hardest part of the job crazy with it was busy in the store and stress management with the managers always looking over your shoulder. – more... The most enjoyable part of the job was the customers never a dull moment. – less

Cabelas' Edmonton
outfitter (Former Employee), EdmontonOctober 16, 2012
Pros: great merchandise, good discounts
Cons: long hard days, caddy co workers, management that plays favorites. poor pay and raises
It starts out as though they are very family oriented and as though they are very flexible...well they are if you are "one of the guy" or until you say no to being over worked and severly underpaid for the expectations placed on you. Don't ever think you will be hired for the position you applied for because in the end you are expected to work everywhere – more... and be able to do everything. The promise to have every weekend off is a HUGE lie. There is not enough staff because they keep quiting. Management is a joke and and look forward to a 10 to max 50 cent raise/hr after a year of working your tail off if you do as you are told. Most staff are ok but the gossip and talking behind backs is over the top especially in the customer service area. This company makes a HUGE HUGE profit and will not pay accordingly and will not hire staff to help all of us who are severly overworked. This company does not care about it's employees one bit. Someone said it in another comment.. The owners of Cabelas' should be sad and ashamed that they allow this to happen. You want quality workers then treat ALL of them the same. – less

Cool products to sell, management has priorities backwards.
Part-time Outfitter (Current Employee), Rogers, ARDecember 17, 2014
Pros: one hour lunch after working 7+ hours, paid breaks, allowed to demo products in store.
Cons: terrible management, expected to do more than is possible in one shift, management cares more about the cabela's credit card than sales, only way to move up is if you are best friends with managements and get club cards, always short-staffed, do not always get proper breaks.
On a normal day at work, there is usually one or two outfitters working in each department. I would check the warehouse for any freight that came in that morning or night before that needs to be put out. I would then bring back any freight to my department and begin putting it away in the warehouse while simultaneously watching the floor, unless there – more... is coverage. Throughout the day we would stock the shelves, assist customers, check prices, create display tags, answer phone calls, do dock shipments/store-to-store transfers, etc.. – less

Wonderful place to work - great people, great opportunity for advancement!
Department Lead (Current Employee), Lone Tree, CODecember 5, 2014
Pros: opportunity for advancement, free lunches, great employee discounts
Every day is like Christmas, here. I love the people I work with and I have made some great friends here. I also love the interaction with our customers, and knowing that my expertise and knowledge has helped someone to better enjoy their adventure in the outdoors.

The work can be hard and the hours long, and it can be difficult to plan events around – more... the fluctuating schedule, but management is very accommodating if you need to change your schedule, or if you need time off for personal reasons.

Turn-over is high, but it is mostly with the younger employees who lack a strong work ethic. I work with military enlisted and officers, a medical doctor, an attorney, an architect, a Ph.D. and a few former business owners, all of whom are retired and who don't really "need" the money, but who love the outdoors and the opportunity to share their knowledge of the outdoors with our customers. – less

Productive workplace selling outdoor fun
deli (Current Employee), Rapid City, SDOctober 13, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: short staffed
Prepping food, making fudge, and taking orders is usually what involves a typical day at work. I have learned more about the food industry and the do's and don'ts. The management is new and just getting into the swing of things, excited to see what's to come. The really is no hard part about the job. The most enjoyable part is going to work with people – more... you get along with. – less

Great place to work with outdoor passions
Sales Associate (Current Employee), East Hartford, CTOctober 7, 2014
Good place to work especially if you have passions for the outdoors, in which I certainly do. Diverse culture of employees and customers alike, there is always something new to learn. Best part of my job being that I am an Eagle scout, is helping the younger scouts when they come into the store. Good co-workers to work with and a lot to learn from and – more... vice versa. There is always room for improvement in the store and everyone alike. – less

Lost the definition of a family company
Management (Current Employee), KansasOctober 7, 2014
Over the last few years the company has lost its identity due to wanting to become a big-box. No longer based on the CORE values it was established on and has lost its appreciation for the sales team. Has no concept of work/life. I understand big-box and would have more support to company if they did not keep denying true ideals instead of family/appreciation – more... of team/work-life/etc. – less

I loved working at Cabela's
Firearms Inspector and Runner (Former Employee), Wheeling, WVOctober 5, 2014
I loved the disciplined and coordinated management teams of each department. I appreciated the extensive training I received in all areas that I expressed interest in. I loved the store and I loved the fun atmosphere. I had a great team of co-workers. The only reason I considered leaving was because it was a permanent part-time position.
